WHAT ARE DEMOCRACY DOLLARS?
Discussed by Robert Henneke
with Texas Public Policy Foundation (www.TexasPolicy.com)

In a move that surprised many, including the attorney who brought the case, the Washington Supreme Court has agreed to hear Elster v. Seattle, which argues that Seattle’s Democracy Voucher Program forces property taxpayers to support political speech they might not agree with. Now, the City of Austin wants to do the same.

Here with all the details is Robert Henneke, General Counsel and Director of the Center for the American Future at the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What are Democracy Dollars?

How many “average Americans” actually contribute financially to political campaigns?

Is this a bipartisan issue? If not, why do so many Liberal want to implement Democracy Dollars?

Is it constitutional to force people to subsidize political speech they might not support? Is it ethical? Is it a proper role of city government?

Listen as Robert Henneke offers more details about the Austin proposal…




TORAH FOR LIVING
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program


Mark Lanier has a brand-new devotional book out: “Torah for Living: Daily Prayers, Wisdom, and Guidance.

Listen as Terry Lowry shares today’s devotion from from Genesis 19:15-26.

This is the passage when God turned Lot’s wife into a pillar of salt. Mark calls it “missed redemption”. How many times have you looked back when God has clearly told you not to?

Another thought: Do you keep repeating the same sins over and over again? Mark encourages you to just keep moving forward in today’s devotion.



WHO IS GOD?
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Day 4

The key to understanding who God is, is Scripture. Everything we need to know about God is within the pages of the Bible. This week, Mark Lanier will be examining the first character trait of God: love. What kinds of love are there? How are they different? How do we apply the various types of love in our own lives?

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What is “eros love”? Is this type of love in the New Testament? Was it mentioned in the Old Testament? Mark looks at the Greek translation of Proverbs 7:18 and Proverbs 30:15-16

We’ve all heard of Agape love. But has it been translated correctly? Mark explains that it is really translated as an “interested love”… Scriptures: John 13:34 and John 15:13. Tune in on Friday for the conclusion…

THE RIGHT KIND OF NEW YEAR
Discussed by Pastor David Fleming
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)


Day 4

How are you doing with your New Year Resolution? Are you still going strong? Have you given up completely? Have you already changed your resolution to something else?

Guess what!?!? Every day is a new day. Start over! It’s okay. Really! Pastor Fleming offers ways to “live the right kind of new year” this week, using Ephesians 5:15-20.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Pastor Fleming uses the church congregation for a participation moment. You can join in! Snap your fingers. Yep – snap your fingers to a count of 1-2-3-4-5-6… Keep snapping each second out. Now stop snapping. Did time stop? Nope! Time keeps going even though you aren’t snapping out the seconds.

Every second, you are one step closer to the end of your life. What are you doing with those seconds?

HOW TO LIVE THE RIGHT KIND OF NEW YEAR: Listen for God’s Will vs 17

This verse is great! Don’t be foolish! Do NOT ignore this one. We are all foolish, especially without God.

Listen as Pastor Fleming explains…

Will people remember your name? Do you really want them to? Or do you want them to remember the name of Jesus when they think of you? Which matters more?

Pastor Fleming reminds us: “You will always be one thing shy of your full potential. But that doesn’t matter. Life is living up to God’s call.”

Pastor David Fleming encourages you to visit Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston this Sunday! CFBC has Life Groups classes (Sunday School) for all ages and walks of life, including Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, as well as several service times and locations to choose from.
